Beagoode is a name that came to England in the 11th century wave of migration that was set off by the Norman Conquest of 1066. Beagoode comes from "the Carlovingian Counts of Artois, whose descendants were advocates of Arras, Lords of Bethune, and Castellans of St. Omer, and were amongst the greatest nobles of Flanders."

Beagoode Early Origins



The surname Beagoode was first found in Staffordshire and Warwickshire, where early records show Bago, or Bagod de Arras in 1075 witnessing a charter in Flanders and show he came to England shortly after the Conquest. Bago of Bagod d'Artas held Bromley in Staffordshire in 1086. A few years later, Rodbert Bagod witnessed a charter of Geva, founding Canwell Priory c. 1140. "A most ancient family, also coeval with the Conquest, descended from Bagod, who at the time of the compilation of the Domesday Book held Bromley of Robert de Stadford or Stafford." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Blithfield in Staffordshire was an ancient family seat. "The Bagot family, of great eminence and antiquity, possessed this and the adjoining estate of Bagot's-Bromley, at the time of the Domesday Survey. In 1195 Hervey Bagot married the heiress of Baron Stafford; his son assumed the surname and title of Stafford, and became progenitor to the succeeding barons and earls of Stafford, and dukes of Buckingham. Of that branch of the family resident at Blithfield and Bromley, was Sir John Bagot, Knt., ancestor of Hervey Bagot, who was created a Baronet in 1627: William Bagot was made a Baron in 1780. Blithfield Hall, the family seat, is an ancient mansion with embattled towers and walls; it stands in the vale of the Blithe or Blythe, on a beautiful lawn, and contains a large and valuable collection of paintings, among which are portraits of many distinguished persons."

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Beagoodes to arrive on North American shores: Stephen Bagot who settled in New England in 1752; John Baggott settled in New England in 1750; William Bagot settled in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1811; and Thomas Baggot settled in Philadelphia in 1855..

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Antiquum obtinens
Motto Translation: Possessing our ancient honour.
